I have 500 words to tell you “about us”. (This is not going to be easy.) So I’m going to turn to an all time favorite Hollywood brat pack classic, and get a little help from my friends… Yup, you guessed it. The Breakfast Club!
Who do we with think we are? You see us as you want to see us… In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But we found out that each one of us is a blogger, a drama queen, a fashionista, a geek, and a reality TV star!
Does that answer your question?
Welcome to MissMalini’s World. What started as a “dot” in the virtual universe has today become a family of people who play hard and work harder at MissMalini.com. I moved to Bombay in the millennium with 2 suitcases and a dream (and lived in a house with six girls and a pigeon!). Now I’m typing these keys while the last 15 years playback in fast-forward in the theatre of my mind.
When I started this blog I had no idea that it would become my universe. I just knew I liked to write, and that I had something to say about everything that I loved. Bollywood, Fashion, Lifestyle & Pop Culture.
And voila, a blog was born. We called it “MissMalini” (yes, a collective decision made with a group of friends in a living room far away back in 2008) My inspiration? Perez Hilton. (Yes Perez, not Paris.)
After years of dabbling in creative careers like professional dancer, wannabe VJ, sometimes emcee, geek-chic copywriter and radio DJ, I decided to write.
I wanted to save and relish the experiences I was having in the city of lights and magic. I wanted to taste the words.
I also wanted people all over the world to stop assuming that India was just what they were used to seeing on the Discovery Channel – Villages and Slumdog Millionaire. My India was everything. Poverty and ache yes, but also glamour and fashion, food and gossip, luxury and travel, love and music. And of course, so many beautiful perfectly imperfect people…
I decided to give myself a digital avatar, one that has been through several stages of Photoshop surgery already! (Because lets face it, she’s going to age a lot better than I do.) And then, I decided to give her my life.
At MissMalini we create content. We’re here to entertain you, tell you what’s up, what people are saying, what’s worth knowing, trying on, eating and watching. We’re your best friend, and we’re never too tired to go out.
We have FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) so you don’t have to. Now sit back, relax and remember @MissMalini – you’re only a tweet away :) (bonus points if you got that “Annie” reference!)
